try doing the check file integrity or run as administrator. doesn't hurt trying sometimes restarting your computer or updating it.

Yup, thats what I get.

Same here. Bought a game that doesn't launch. Feeling prett miffed about the whole thing. amd cpu, nvidia gtx 760, 16gb RAM.. I'm pretty sure I meet the minimum requirements. This needs immediate attention both from y'all, and ID Software. With Doom 4 on the horizo - they care. Trust me.

I have the same problem. The first time I installed the game it work with the "+ set 0" stuff, so i know that my computer meat the requirements but then I erased the game. Now I installed it again but that doesn't work. Any ideas? I checked the file integrity and it's fine

Do you have a supported graphics card? the open GL error might signify your GPU is too old or doesnt support the right direct X/open GL
pottys Jul 27 @ 12:25pm 
I think, it's the prob., because u can play it only over steam :(((
pottys Jul 27 @ 12:30pm

Es war mal wieder ein Griff ins Klo^^
